My name is Amy and I am 28 years old. I was diagnosed with PCOS in 2011 and also just found out I have a uterine fibroid. I have no kids and have always wanted and loved them. I have been trying to get pregnant for a little over a year now and no luck at all.
I just went to a new gynecologist and I'm confused. Right after they noticed I had PCOS and a fibroid they suggested I go to a infertility clinic, is this normal? I see on this board a lot of people have tried medicines first like metformin and such. Should I go to a different doctor before trying infertility specialists? I don't know if my insurance will cover that. I'm just confused on what I should do next and of course discouraged. I really hope I can meet some friends on here that know what I am going through.
There are a lot of doctors out there who have no idea what to do with PCOS. I went through so many and the last one before the one I have now said that she had "no magic bullet" for me and told me nothing was wrong and that I was ok. I'm seeing a regular gynocologist now and he's great.. It can't hurt to get another opinion.
I would totally find a new Dr. I saw a regular OBGYN when I was DX and he only sent me to a fertility specialist after I had failed on Metformin and Clomid combined. And even then I only went for a consult, and my normal Dr did all the followup. Now that we are TTC#2 I have a different OBGYN, but still not seeing a specialist.
Hi! I'm Natasha, one of the hosts of this board! Nice to meet you!
I would suggest you get a second opinion. Some OBGYNs do not know how to react to and/or treat women with PCOS. But there are many who will monitor you on Met and Clomid. My OBGYN only suggested I see my Fertility specialist after I had 3 failed clomid cycles. Sooooo.... there are other options!
